useCurrentUser Custom React Hook

By Simeon Griggs

Get details of the currently logged in Sanity user


import userStore from 'part:@sanity/base/user'
import { useEffect, useState } from 'react'

export function useCurrentUser() {
  const [user, setUser] = useState()

  useEffect(() => {
    userStore.currentUser.subscribe(e => setUser(e.user))
  }, [])

  if (!user) {
    return {}

  return user

Sometimes you want to gate or modify your custom Studio components based on the current logged in user.

This Custom Hook can be dropped into any component to get the user's ID, email address, and more.
